In the post 9/11 era it has become harder and harder to exercise our constitutional rights. For example police often crack down on peaceful demonstrations that are protected by the First Amendment - freedom of speech. This video shows how freeway bloggers in Davis, California were able to turn a bad situation with the CHP into a good one. It is a model that political activists can use in any city or state.
Briefly here is the history:
In October 2009, our 2nd ever freeway blogging event in Davis, we ran into the harassment and intimidation of the CHP. Although we were not breaking the law
If you know our history you know that we had to work in cooperation with CHP (California Highway Patrol) to be able to do our peaceful demonstrations for 9/11 Truth in peace. In October 2009 CHP shut down our demonstration with bullying tactics and no regard for us or the law. We met with the CHP captain in February 2010 to work out a deal whereby we could do what we wanted and they could be reassured that we were not breaking the law or doing anything dangerous. We first put that plan into place in April 2010. This is the 6th time we've gone freeway blogging with the CHP's cooperation. It has worked every time. We want to let you know that if you want to do a peaceful demonstration it is possible to have the cooperation of the police. It is very desirable too.

What happens when citizens exercising their right of free speech come up against overzealous CHP officers who have decided to put an end to the display regardless of the Constitution and the law?
Watch our exciting video and find out.
To make a long story short we were within our rights to be doing what we were doing, yet a couple of CHP guys who admittedly “don’t care what the law says” came along. We tried so many times to talk with them, to reason with them, but they were not open to it. They just repeated their assertions and ordered us to leave. Threatened with arrest and jail, we took down our banner and left. But we caught almost all of it on camera.
Three determined men, Bob, Petr and Mark, do our first ever freeway blogging on the 8th anniversary of 9/11. Our banner reads, "9/11 was Created by U.S. Gov to Manipulate U.S. into War." We had a visit from the CHP. The sergeant was friendly and cooperated and gave us no problems. He said that the traffic at our overpass was backed up but not because of our banner. We cooperated with him too. We had a long conversation and he did not make us leave. One of his sidekicks had an attitude but we did not have to listen to him. Watch for the shot of the Sergeant holding our banner for us. Later on the Davis P.D. came by and also had an attitude, but we were leaving for lunch. Overall many drivers honked in approval. It was hot, sunny, and noisy, and we learned some key things about video and audio quality. We will be back! This was fun and I encourage you to try it! By the way see the videos from April and May 2008 of freeway blogging by We Are Change L.A. They had visits from the fuzz too and handled them. Knowing your rights you can exercise them.
This was the MOST HARDCORE FREEWAY BANNERING EVER! We stood on THREE overpasses practically on top of one another in Hollywood, California.
We gave commuters a THREE OVERPASS EYEFUL of 9-11 TRUTH
And we reached out to the California Highway Patrol, and the LAPD.
It's working. Come join us. It's fun, too! Exercise your freedom, while you still can. Help wake up others.
We are Patriots. We are Fearless. WeAreChange.

During our freeway blogging, with our massive blue banner, a special soul stopped by for a visit. Ferenz lost a good friend in one of the towers on 9-11, and he tells us his story, and he shares his feelings about what we are doing.

This is some freeway blogging a friend known to this site as natty_warrior and I did on 08/11/07. Later that day we went down to the city hall where there was a blues festival going on and we gave out 300 flyers along with 50 dvds in an hour and a half. The overall response was good and we will continue to pound the pavement! Anyone in the area who would like to do some action please contact us. We are going to go out every weekend for an hour, handing out dvds and flyers and spreading the quest for truth.
